Spread for Anne

Last week we had our Artist Leadership Network meeting.  We are swapping small blank books with each other every month.  This is the spread that I did for my friend Anne.  The Buddha face  is from one of her postcards used with her permission.  I love her artwork!  you can see her artwork at .  The fold at the bottom can be flipped down to see more writing.  We are having a great time working in each other’s books.  I highly recommend this form of art play!

Giveaway #1

These are the giveaway items won by Sara C. of Scrapbasket in my first ever Giveaway.  I just thought that you might like to see them in their finished state.  Sara, as it happens, is a fellow quilter and creative type whom I have known for  quite a number of years.  Her quilts are a mix of traditional and contemporary and everything in between.  She has an eye for color and imaginative use of prints.  In fact, I just finished quilting one of her quilts last week shown below.  Now, don’t get the idea that the drawing was rigged.  In truth, I know many of my subscribers personally.  Who knows, one of you whom I don’t know could be next.  Let’s see those comments!

Altered Book Spread

ALN challenge: It's About Time

Deadlines come and deadlines go.  I am always glad when they are extended.  Our Artist Leadership Network challenge for July, picked by me, dealt with our feelings about time.  Never enough, rushed,finding time, making time, time out, all out of time: the list goes on.  I chose to do a two page “spread” in a very old book whose pages are oxidized and starting to crumble.  I picked various words from the text and made “found” poetry. Crayon, Pigma pen, Sharpie and gesso were used and then the collage elements were added.  I am pleased with how my first altered book spread turned out!
